Review by: Geoff Coughlin
Our thanks to Peter Bagshaw and the Southern Expo guys for the review samples. Find much more information and details here.
These decals were first made available at the Southern Expo model show on 24th & 25th March 2012.
Available direct from the manufacturer for £7.50 (including UK postage), they are also available for £7.95 from 3D-Kits or at £8.50 a sheet for International post.
Currently, they have been printed by Microscale in 1:32 scale only (for now!).
The Decals – more info
These incredibly interesting sheets are printed by none other than Microscale and are therefore excellent quality. In perfect register, great colour tones and just stunning!
No less than 5 different RAF Spitfire aircraft schemes are included, including unique variations for Al Deere’s No. 54 Squadron Mk.IA Kiwi III plus many others.
The Luftwaffe aren’t left out with some interesting aircraft featured in the conflict such as Bf 109E-1 ‘Yellow 12’ flown by Fw. Ernst Arnold of 3./JG27 and Bf 109E-3 ‘White 2’ flown by Ofw. Johann Illner, 4./JG51, based in France, 31 August 1940.
You can use the main black crosses from the kit decal sheet, using the ones supplied here to personalise your model.
What’s the Verdict?
Truly outstanding innovation by the Southern Expo guys; congratulations on producing something original, high quality and unique. Excellent stuff.
Buy these sets; you’ll be able to create something very original and different, whether your interest is RAF or Luftwaffe subjects from WWII.
